[SENDMAIL]relay only to auth users if FROM: user@mydom and no relay for staff@mydom

Hi everyone!

is there a way to force sendmail to authenticate the users if the
email sender field is "From"?
this because i receive a lot of emails where the sender smtp field is
forged by spammers, this enables them to send emails to my domain without being authenticated.

I would also like to force authentication to "group" emails account
(like only to authenticated users? this would
limit the spam from to

maybe i could implement those features with spamassassin although sendmail maybe seems more right, what do you think?

my version: Sendmail 8.13.1/8.13.1

thankyou very much !
